One way to have the best overall diet and see results to the fullest potential when working out is to increase your protein intake. Protein at it’s highest quality such as chicken, turkey and low fat Greek yogurt contain amino acids, which help muscles recover after a workout. Immediate amino acids after a work out will help your conditioning and recovery even more. This is why any athletes drink protein shakes.
The main effects of protein are it provides building blocks for increased muscle growth, and protein releases anabolic hormones, such as insulin, that stimulate muscle growth.
I was very hesitant before I started drinking protein. Now that I do, I see muscle tone and I see inches falling off of my body. Protein does not make you big; McDonald’s makes you big.
Until next time,
